Community Theatre Fundraising


For Art Collectors and Visitors to the Event

Visitors: Entrance either day is free, however parking onsite is $5 per car. There will be an ATM on site for patrons’ convenience. Come for the art, the variety of ethnic and Minnesota food options and the variety of entertainment that is performed on two separate stages in the park.

This is an outdoor event so be prepared for any type of weather. If hot, as it has so often been, you’ll want to stay hydrated. Water is available to purchase from several food vendors or plan to bring your own.

This Year's Event: July 28 and 29

Art in the Park (AITP) is Andria Theatre’s most important fundraiser. The event draws vendors from throughout the upper Midwest who are visited in the two-day event by 20,000-30,000 patrons. Held on the last weekend in July, please join us in the summer of 2018 at City Park in Alexandria, Minnesota.
